Future Leaders affords students and families a foundation to a successful and engaging school experience. Future Leaders designs programming around the individualized needs and goals of our students, assisting them throughout high school and transitioning them into a college or career pathway.  We provide a team during and/or after school for: academic support, goal setting, motivational guest speakers, community engagement activities, self-awareness building, college visits, career/college planning, internships, soft skills development, service learning, and wellness activities. Liberty Partnerships also continues to offer a wide range of these services throughout the summer. We at Future Leaders are invested in each student, having a positive impact on graduation rates and increased school engagement.  We believe in building positive relationships and in doing so, each student becomes their best self, a Future Leader.
